you could look at the zenbook 15 oled (bit out of budget) or the vivobook 15x oled which can be found under 1000 cad. I have a vivobook 15x oled and the display is incredible, great keyboard, great batterylife, fast with its 12th gen i5.

I have purchased several certified refurbished Dell Precision and HP Elitebook business class machines that are all in excellent condition in the $500 range. In fact I just purchased one Dell Precision 7720 with a 17-inch 4K display, 64GB of RAM, 16GB Quadro P5000 (MXM) for under $600 last week. These machines are built like a tank with full metal chassis. You can usually purchase them with an extended warranty through Square Trade or Allstate at the time of purchase if you're worried about not purchasing something that is brand new. If you buy something new for $1,000+ more it's probably going to have poor overall build quality and be a less serviceable piece of garbage.

The Vivobook with OLED screen that @ryan makes reference is a good idea. Here in Europe a Vivobook OLED you can find  the cheaper version 600-750 euro. But it is 1920x1080. Also 16:9 not 16:10.
